ILM Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching and Mentoring

Primary tabs

7 July 2020 - 10:00am to 25 August 2020 - 12:30pm

We have redesigned this very popular coaching and mentoring qualification to deliver the sessions via zoom. The qualification is designed to give managers of any level a solid foundation in management coaching and mentoring. A skilled coach or mentor is an invaluable asset to any organisation. As well as increasing confidence and motivation, ILM’s coaching and mentoring qualifications improve management performance, conflict resolution and communication and interpersonal skills. There are three assignments to complete and most learners will complete the qualification within 9 months. An online skills practice session will support you with practical coaching skills.

For this qualification learners are required to evidence 18 hours of coaching and/or mentoring practice with a minimum of two and maximum of three clients.  You will also be required to record one hour of coaching practice observed by your manager or supervisor. We can signpost you to a coaching supervisor for the purposes of your qualification and this may attract an additional cost between yourself and the supervisor.

Following a one hour Induction session on Tuesday 7 July from 10am -11am, the programme will consist of the following 2.5 hour webinars which will run from 10am – 12.30pm on the allocated dates:

  • Purpose of coaching.  The Organisational Culture.  Potential Barriers Thursday 16 July

You will be expected to undertake independent study and will be set a reading/research task between sessions. NICVA will provide assignment support Friday 7 August from 10am – 11am and one to one feedback as and when suits each learner.

This course is aimed at those working in the voluntary and community sector in NI.  Please note:  Our services are currently restricted and this may result in a delay in acknowledging receipt of your booking.  Payment must be received, however, on or before Thursday 9 July and unfortunately the course may be cancelled if the minimum number of attendees is not reached.
